Penalties for Prescription Drug Fraud

Prescription drug fraud, one of the fastest growing crimes today, consists of obtaining a controlled substance by illegal means for profit or personal use. In an attempt to stem the rise of prescription fraud, strict laws have been enacted and severe penalties are in place for persons convicted.

Some of the penalties may include:

  • Prison term of up to five years
  • Loss of license for convicted medical professionals
  • Substantial fines

These are serious charges that impose life-altering consequences.

Prescription drugs that are most commonly abused include morphine, Valium, Vicodin, Xanax, OxyContin, Lorcet, Dilaudid, Percocet, Soma and Darvocet.

  • Altering prescriptions
  • Filling out stolen prescription pads
  • Posing as medical staff to call in prescriptions
  • Obtaining multiple prescriptions by "doctor shopping"

We understand that those accused of prescription fraud often suffer from drug addiction and are sometimes the victims of over-eager police and prosecutor methods. We have extensive trial experience with all types of drug cases, including prescription fraud, possession, and drug distribution and trafficking and always strive to minimize the charges our clients face. We aggressively move towards a result that is the best possible outcome including dismissal in some cases and lessened charges in others.
